Charlotte, North Carolina is known for many things. Farms, churches, acres upon acres of home steads, Southern Hospitality, warmer climate than the rest of the Northeast and so on.

My family moved to Charlotte NC 5 years ago and it has been a huge change for us moving from the New York City area. It is a change we have embraced and enjoyed and we have absolutely no regrets. Charlotte is known for being a great place for families to bring up their kids. It is very green and the city does such a  great job with parks, museums etc for kids and their parents. Another thing that Charlotte NC is known for is its beautiful outdoors and also its great location. An easy 2-3 hour drive from Charlotte will land you in the mountains or the beach-whichever catches your fancy. And if you are not too excited about that long a drive, then all around and in the Charlotte area are mountains and lakes.

The beautiful outdoors affords most photographers a perfect backdrop for their art. I have a small home studio for those times when the weather is not so favorable but since moving to Charlotte, NC, my preference has been shooting outdoors. There are so many gorgeous options around and in Charlotte for photo sessions. Just this past weekend, I discovered another jewel about 25 minutes from Uptown Charlotte- The Goat island Park in nearby Cramerton. It is the perfect backdrop for an engagement or couple photo session as well as family photos. Infact my own family will be having our holiday photos done at this location this year.

Brittany reached out to me about a fall mini session for herself , her daughter and her mom. The weather was perfect that Sunday evening and we met at what most people know is my favorite spot for photos- Latta Nature Preserve. Asides boasting a gorgeous beach lakefront area, Latta has numerous trails that lead to the most beautiful spots for a photoshoot. Latta is in the Hunstersville area and only about 20 minutes from Uptown with no traffic. Another reason i like this location is that there is so much space especially when considering large family sessions. Britt’s family was on the smaller side but I think this location works out great whatever the size of family.

The last weekend of October saw some beautiful Fall foliage all around the preserve but since it was a mini session, we stuck to one area to maximize the time we had. I always advise that families book a full session of an hour to afford them an opportunity to get a variety of locations in their session. Sometimes though a mini photo session is enough and for Britt and her family this was a great choice.

We got the opportunity to capture some beautiful memories of three generations. I am hopeful generations to come will look back on these photos and see some beautiful and strong women in their bloodline that will leave them inspired to forge ahead and do even greater things than their ancestors. I love having grandparents show up at a photo session. It is always so heartwarming to see them  beautifully aged faces close together with the newest member of the family

Just as we were wrapping up the session, we stumbled across a gorgeous car. I am not a car expert but it was definitely an opportunity I and Brittany wanted to take advantage of and I am glad we did. The photos from this Fall Family Photo Session turned out absolutely better than I could have planned or hoped for. Here are some of the photos from the session. You can tell this family was an absolute joy to photograph. Enjoy the photos and I do hope they encourage you to consider booking a photo session for your  family- no matter the size, makeup or time investment. You sure will be glad you did.
